Some Case Studies

This chapter presents some examples of turbulent flows encountered in industry. We see how they have been successfully modeled and computed using some of the techniques presented earlier in this book. Turbulent flow fields in these examples have been treated using RANS based models of different complexities as well as more advanced techniques such as DNS and LES. The examples cover a wide spectrum involving heat exchangers with turbulent convective heat transfer, stirred vessel with complex three-dimensional, turbulent and rotating flow, turbulent flow in tundish used in steel industry, ventilation in buildings, film cooling effectiveness. A reader may like to read the corresponding papers for further details of the cases presented.
